Hello friends, hope your enjoying the start to the weekend.

On December 7th, my great-niece blessed our family with the delivery of twin girls.
They were born early and teeny tiny and are in the neo-natal unit of the hospital, but are healthy and
thriving.  They weighed in at under three pounds and the girls are now 3 pounds and
 4 pounds.

Of course, I made a card for when they were born, but I wanted to
make a card for when they are finally both home with their parents and
big brother, who by the way will be two in February.  So here it is.

The storks and footprints are both by Magnolia Rubber Stamps!
How cute are they? (If only it was this easy, right?)
Dotted card stock is DCWV and Circle dies are Spellbinders (Grand dies)
Colored with Copics.

 The lettering is a Cuddlebug emboss and cut folder of the Alphabet.

The hearts are Spelllbinder's dies.

A closup of these sweet storks, making their very special delivery.

Flower cluster and leaves die by Cherry Lynn Designs

We can't wait until these babies can come home.

Challenges I want to enter this card into:

7Kids College Fund - #90 - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a great day and wonderful weekend.  Until later.............

This is gorgeous. I love the embossed letters in the circles, the fat little footprints (AWWW) on the hearts, the flowers and your beautiful coloring.

I sure hope your niece will have some help when these babies get home. Three babies - ouch under 2..... God knew what he was doing when he made Mothers young!
